Violin Instructor: Elizabeth Prince (Benson)

Elizabeth Prince (Benson) Violin Instructor at Skip's Music


Traditional/Classical violin with an occasional contemporary twist to the lesson.


Liz began studying traditional/classical violin around the age of 10 and has been playing since. She has been awarded “most versatile musician” by Keyboard III Studios in Colorado and has won 1st and 2nd place in many middle and high school state competitions. She has also studied music at Metropolitan State College (Denver, CO), Sacramento City College, and with private instructors. She has also played violin for several local Sacramento bands such as The Mythics, Tiny Monster Invasion & Illusions Echo. If you’re curious, Liz’s current personal music projects are with original band, The Bitter and cover-band The Receptions.


Liz teaches basic traditional/classical violin techniques to beginning (and sometimes intermediate) students. She uses the ‘All For Strings’ book series for her lessons. Liz likes to ensure an excellent foundation is set with good posture, a correct bow grip, precise intonation, solid timing and the ability to sight read.
